9 uniquely Australian Christmas cards

I love Christmas. Down here in Australia we celebrate it a lot differently than your ‘typical’ white Christmas. Instead of snow, reindeers and sledding we have scorching hot weather, kangaroos pulling Santa’s sled and fun in the backyard pool.

I think these cards typify what Christmas is like down here. They are relaxed, laid-back and they celebrate our uniqueness.

10 Christmas cards with an Aussie twist

It’s only 5 weeks until Christmas!

Christmas is my favourite time of year. As soon as the stores hang up their tinsel and fairy lights I start playing my Christmas playlist and start unpacking our Christmas decorations.

The way we celebrate Christmas is so very different than our friends in the northern hemisphere. It is generally hot, we spend a lot of time in the pool and we chow down on cold meats, salad and a big ‘ole pavlova.

As our experience is different it always seems a little weird to send cards depicting a white Christmas with snowmen and snowflakes and…well…snow! So I’ve tracked down a few Aussie Christmas cards that depict a Christmas down under. Enjoy!
